The combined membership of the Montreal Council of Women
of over 30,000 women and men supports its aim to work and
improve social conditions, especially as they affect women and
children. The Council is strengthened by its affiliations with
Conseil des femmes du QuĂ©bec/the Provincial Council of Women of
Quebec, women working together to improve the well-being of
women, their families and Quebec society and with the
Council of Women of Canada.
The National Council of Women of Canada is one of 64 affiliates
of the International Council of Women, which has Category 1
Consultative Status at the
United Nations (ECOSOC).
As an association, the Council prides itself on the ability to
bring people of different cultures and backgrounds together in
an atmosphere of mutual respect, tolerance and friendship. Through study,
discussion and action,
members inform themselves and those in their communities so that
they can achieve MCW/CFMâ€™s goals. For over 120 years, the MCW/CFM
has been working together to improve the quality of life for the
citizens of Montreal.
